Collections and Resources

Explore free Pennsylvania resources and public collections, over 200 GSP Member Collections, and our online publications archive.

The GSP Library Catalog has over 1500 books held by the library of The Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania. Several additional family and research collections are available at the GSP Library.

Publications Archive

The GSP newsletter is a free public resource. The Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine (1948-2015, formerly Publications of the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania, 1895-1947), and the former GSP newsletter, Penn In Hand, are online for GSP members.

Collections – GSP Library

Search the GSP Library Catalog and browse our list of onsite collections. GSP also has several other collections for library research, which will be added to the online list soon.

GSP collections have been digitized thanks to our members and donors, including a generous bequest from Ruth Bitting Hamm, a family historian and benefactor of several genealogical and historical organizations nationwide.
